Distributed titles: Curated releases, and Exclusive color-ways from other great soundtrack releases from around the world.

The Maestro Morricone’s Mediterranean sounds for the cult movie “Il Prefetto di Ferro” – directed by Pasquale Squitieri and starring the Italian cinema legend Giuliano Gemma – are sometimes warm, sometimes hard and sharp. With this score we can easily understand how much the Italian composer know about Sicilian folk music; the wonderful ballad “La Ballata del Prefetto Mori”, with its sad lyrics written by Ignazio Buttitta, is magistrally interpreted by one of the most important voices of Sicilian folk music: the legendary Rosa Balistreri. Deluxe reissue on LP, remastered with audiophile quality.
